“There were only so many narrative grief poems I could write (and that a reader could stand to read). Some other voice or perspective had to step in to carry the book, and in this case it was science.”

So happy to have the chance to contribute to The Cloudy House, a website devoted to project books and the process of writing them. Thanks to Cynthia Marie Hoffman Studner for coordinating this interview! The Cloudy House website features my interview and dozens of others.

Review copies of The Nomenclature of Small Things have just arrived on my doorstep, and the collection is available for pre-order from UPNE (University Press of New England).

The cover art is gorgeous, and the book design by Connie Amoroso is beautiful. Looking forward to having these books out in the world soon. I am working now on scheduling readings and getting the word out!

Thanks to Claire Trevien of Sabotage Reviews for her insightful comments on my chapbook of science poems, Tiktaalik, Adieu.

“This is a chapbook that uses science, not as a crutch but as a system. Pedersen’s poems are scientific in the way that they query and correct themselves; she is a writer who’s aware that science is a process of evolution, of testing and re-testing, and this comes through.”

You can read the entire review here.
